Movie Info

DESTINATION WEDDING reunites two of Hollywood's most adored stars, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, as the socially awkward Frank and Lindsay. When they meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and most especially each other. As the weekend's events continually force them together -- and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests -- Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen. When debate gives way to desire they must decide which is stronger: their hearts or their common sense.

Critic Reviews for Destination Wedding

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (19)

  • Despite having two inherently likable actors in Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, Levin's characters are so disagreeable that it's difficult to become sympathetic toward their whirlwind affair. And a lot of the dialogue rings false.

  • Your enjoyment may depend on how cheekily delightful you find it that they keep up the chatter even during a hillside hump: "Can we please stop talking about your mother?" "I'm killing time."

  • Levin is determined to make you loathe his characters, and for the most part, he succeeds. Set this RSVP on fire.

    Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Writer-director Victor Levin takes an interesting although ultimately tedious and distracting approach to nearly every scene.

    Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Watching unpleasant characters onscreen isn't always a fun experience, so casting Reeves and Ryder is genius. They're both full-on movie stars: charismatic, wildly photogenic, the whole nine yards

    Sep 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Whatever the intent, forcing a couple of middle-aged misanthropes to reluctantly attend the nuptials of their rather reviled friends sets a hopelessly high bar for delivering satisfying entertainment.

Audience Reviews for Destination Wedding

A wonderfully constructed (and acted) exercise in egotism.
